Friday's Letters: Bachelorette, Christmas Tree and Patterned Tights

Dear Blog Friends....I'm going to play Pageant mom sister for one hot minute and ask you to vote for my sister! She's one of the Top 10 Finalists in Hilton Head's Bachelorette contest and I want her to win soooo bad. Go here to vote. Name is Shannon Krieger for voting :)
Yeah....I know.....along with getting show room size feet, she also got all the looks in our family....seriously, unfair gene distribution. And no, no she doesn't work out......but yes, you can hate her just a little bit for that.

Dear Christmas Tree....my goodness, you are a lot skinnier than Target originally advertised. Maybe I should have sprung for the $49.99 model but, you make my apartment corner look happy...and funny....nonetheless.
Please don't fall over in the middle of the night due to the weight of the too-many-ornaments I put on you because that would freak me out

Dear O'Malley....I miss your face. Work is way better when you're in my lap keeping me company.

Dear Whitney - You run your MARATHON this weekend. And I just know you are going to kill it! You're such an inspiration chica!

Dear Coworkers (and anyone who works in an office that might not know) raw fish of any kind is not an acceptable lunch....like, ever. Also, it not advisable to eat raw eggs at the office either. Sadly, I had to witness this, this week. #vomit.  Dear blog readers..I was surprised that most of you chose to be able to dance over sing in Wednesday's post....apparently my reader demographic is a group that likes to break it down and get funky. I like it. Dear Patterned Tights I wore Yesterday....While you are super cute, I realized about two hours too late that I must have bought the size for someone a foot shorter than me because I was pulling at my crotch like Justin Bieber in concert all day....kind of ruined the "ladylike" tights effect I must say. Dear blog readers (part 2).....I've had big plans for this blog and no time to execute them. However, I will keep deceiving myself that I will have time in the New Year and that the glorious plans I have in my head will soon play out on the Internet. 

Friday you never looked so good

1) I voted. 2) you are just as gorgeous as your sister! 3) We have a skinnier tree also, but that's because we don't have much room in our living room. I like how your tree looks :) and 4) I just ordered a pair of patterned tights, but I doubt I'll have the same problem you had ;) Love you!

Angel said...

megan said...

Voted! And I think you both got the good looks in your family. :) But I do hate her a little for not having to work out...

P!nky said...

Brooke said...

Voting for your sister - but girl you are absolutely gorgeous!! And tights do me the same way, I'm always like hope they aren't looking!

I decided tights' packaging is a lie. Apparently, you have to get the height size about your height IRL, because it is alllllways a crotch pulling affair. My mom has pics of me as a child yanking at my tights and crying. Real cute!

julia rose. said...

Girl you cray cray- you are absolutely GORGEOUS yourself!!! But I'm sorry, I do have to resent your sister a little bit for her no work out body- I mean, come onnnn, that's not fair! Good luck to her- voting now!!

Katie said...

Sara Louise said...

Your sister is so pretty! Voted.
And why would someone eat raw eggs at the office? Or ever? Why? It's so gross.

Megan said...

You and your sister are both so stunning!! I love your skinny tree. We are doing a small one this year, too!
